DOH plans to conduct surveys each week which will include the last week’s data and cumulative data as the weeks progress. They highlighted the need for providers to keep testing logs each week. Providers can print off/save your data as you complete the surveys, prior to submitting. You cannot go back into the database after you submit. We encourage all providers to register and listen in to the Seminar tomorrow for full information.
